It’s not every day on the golf course that you get smacked by an errant drive. Especially when said drive came from one of the world’s best golfers.
One lucky individual — or, er, unlucky — crossed that off some weird bucket list Friday after he was struck by none other than Dustin Johnson, winner of the 2019-20 PGA Tour.
Johnson’s shot came on the par-4 10th hole of the Saudi International at the Royal Greens Golf Club in Saudi Arabia; his drive seemed to have gone way, way left and hit the unsuspecting individual square in his right shoulder blade. While it’s certainly not a laughing matter, the TV commentary saying “he’s just fine” as he doubled over was pretty darn funny.
No shame to the gentleman, either: Not many people could take a reported 177 mph drive in the back and walk away unscathed.
Johnson earned par on the hole, by the way. So, no harm done! Almost.
